I was hoping they would drop it completely as if it never happen.  Then a few months later towards the end of one of their normal episodes, have Mike casually ask "Hey Jay, remember that time you fell in love with and almost married Mr. Plinkett"?

Jay: No, i don't remember that at all.
Mike: Yeah me neither.

God that whole series. At the end of #2 they repel an attack from the bad guys who have to run away, and then stay in the same place. I'm like, any bad organization that isn't COMPLETELY incompetent would just send reinforcements as the dumb fucks decided to stay in the same place.

Quote
Okay Jay/Rich this is the rough edit. Insert the final trailer after it's uploaded this Sunday or Monday (You'll see the spot for it) This way we can have the reaction video out before everyone else. Our reactions will probably match up to the trailer as these SW trailers are pretty boilerplate and predictable at this point. Remember DO NOT POST THIS anytime before the official release of the trailer. We'll look really stupid. Also, Rich - a collection agency keeps calling my phone looking for you. They sounded pretty mad. Made some comments about "breaking your legs" - which seemed a little unusual for collections? Your gambling habit hasn't resurfaced again has it? If so we need to have a talk. DO NOT borrow money from Jimmy "the leg breaker" Malone anymore. Okay, talk with you guys soon. - Mike

I've rewatched the prequel reviews over the last couple days, and I have to say, I think the Episode 3 one is the best.

- Stupid Kid Han Solo
- "Where would you rape the Millenium Falcon anyways? ...RIGHT THERE, I'VE DONE IT"
- Commander Nefarious, Captain Imabadguy, and Admiral Bonetopick
- "Mmm... I like to fuck my cat."
- "Like when Yoda is on Kashyyyk, is he like 'Hey... wait a minute... Palpatine's behind it all!'"
- PALPATINE'S BEHIND IT ALL
- "The entire Senate is filled with stupid idiots." <picture of the US Senate>
- Kneeling before Monster Mash and pledging loyalty to the graveyard smash
- Great filmmaking comparison between the boringness of Anakin telling Mace that Palpatine is a Sith, and the excitement of Star Trek 09

I also really dig his suggested improvements and how the Clone War really should have went down. I dunno, RotS is the best of the prequels but it surprisingly has the most material for a takedown review.

I dunno if I'd put it over the Phantom Menace. PM issues aside, it was an "alright" film that should've set the "tone" for the prequel with the political backstabbing being the fore-front. From what I recall (and I am not watching the prequels ever again) it was there in the background and then SURPRISE THE SENATOR IS A SITHLORD! :doge

I liked the varied settings in TPM the most and the ending was the best fight scene in any SW movie.

That's enough for me to put it as the best. The third one was ponderous, visually dark and drab, and the final battle was a shitshow.


Kind of a moot exercise though. It's like picking out your favorite D+ paper your kid wrote.

Lowkey his Titanic review is pretty good.

I put off watching it for so long since I actually like Titanic a lot (yeah yeah, whatever) but you're right, it's a good review too.

In fact all his reviews are worth watching (maybe the Star Trek ones less so if you're not into Trek), except the TFA one which has good parts but gets bogged down in "ring theory" shit for too long.

I sorta wish they’d relax the HITBs in favor of more re:View and especially BOTW. There’s only so many HITB I can watch where Mike and Jay are lukewarm on a popcorn blockbuster.

I burned through every (then) available BotW years ago and have been crawling my way through old HITBs I haven’t already seen for one reason or another ever since and maybe 1/5 are worth the whole 30-45m outside of the Plinkett skits.

I realize that all probably goes against what the view numbers tell them to do, but afaik they’re making the vast majority of their money on patreon and I’d much rather watch the occasional HITB about movies they loved or the disasters like Justice League. As it is it kinda feels like they’re going through the motions to put out 30m or so of commentary on movies that neither of them give much of a shit about.

I love watching Mike and Rich talk about Star Trek. They should do a re:View of their favorite TNG moments.

You know what they should really do is let Jay fucking talk about Twin Peaks: The Return for a few hours uninterrupted.

He did it a little halfway through the season on Bald Guy and Rich's gaming stream thing. He was loving it.

Dunno if he's been on since then though, he's not a big gamer.

I wouldn't have hundreds of hours into FTL if not for watching those early Rich Pre-Rec streams. For that alone the entire thing is redeemed in my eyes.

Both guys have some really dumb off the cuff hottakes on their livestreams, however. I usually just watch their reviews now and skip the twitch stuff.

There's several things to disagree on PreRec, but I thought some of their cynical approaches to the industry are refreshing compared to gaming journalism/other Youtube coverage, which too often feels like straight up shilling in this hobby. I liked that one E3 review they had a few years back. And when they are enthusiastic about things like Bloodborne and Doom, they are also more eloquent and insightful than your average youtuber, I feel.

Not even that, because as they pointed out Suicide Squad had a somewhat diverse cast too yet that wasn't really a major point of discussion. I'm all for more diversity but it is indeed hard not to agree the narrative seems to be amped up for only very select titles and not to suspect it's being fed by a marketing in service of the ever increasing control by fewer hands of the collective mindshare / cultural market which is certainly a form of impoverishment of a certain diversity.

I can tolerate disasters like BvS as long as they have something interesting in them, I can tolerate schlock but what I can't tolerate is generic, bland crap that make no impact on me whatsover. Justice League wasn't just bad but it has been Disney-fied which is the worst offense I can imagine in movies nowadays. It's forgettable and mindnumbingly boring, I should have just listened the RLM commentantary without watching movie, I think that piece of crap ruined my experience.

surviving edged weapons
I was watching surviving edged weapons I had this feeling of deja vu. It turns out I watched that as a training video when I was a correctional officer in Arizona back in the 90s. Unfortunately they edited out all the funnier bits where people were talking to each other with their shity Wisconsin accents when I watched it the first time. I definitely would have picked up on that because I'm from Wisconsin. So I don't think there's going to be any video that surpasses that for me.

And they're totally on point with the whole "oh my God everything can kill me." You want to know why law enforcement is like a nervous Barney Fife? Watch this video!
One training day was devoted to watching security videos of inmates and officers getting killed in various ways. Not reenactors but the actual thing. Nothing like seeing a officer in a pool blood and the sergeant telling you if you ever let your guard down this is what happens.

I'm just happy I can watch this video now and laugh my ass off.

Quote from: Roger Ebert
The day may come when Freddy Got Fingered is seen as a milestone of neo-surrealism.
Quote from: Roger Ebert
Seeing Tom Green reminded me, as how could it not, of his movie Freddy Got Fingered, which was so poorly received by the film critics that it received only one lonely, apologetic positive review on the Tomatometer. I gave it—let's see—zero stars. Bad movie, especially the scene where Green was whirling the newborn infant around his head by its umbilical cord. But the thing is, I remember Freddy Got Fingered more than a year later. I refer to it sometimes. It is a milestone. And for all its sins, it was at least an ambitious movie, a go-for-broke attempt to accomplish something. It failed, but it has not left me convinced that Tom Green doesn't have good work in him. Anyone with his nerve and total lack of taste is sooner or later going to make a movie worth seeing.

Faust looks incredible. It's like Yuzna made a live action Devilman.

Thought the comic character itself seems based in Jack Kirby’s The Demon
Title: Re: RedLetterMedia Thread
Post by: VomKriege on April 15, 2018, 03:42:41 AM
Faust is really bad & sorta boring and they did a good job putting a finger on the issues. That main actor is just that goofy all throughout. But still, Yuzna, so it has some actual personality and kinks.

Jay apparently never heard of the myth of Faust ?

They didn't mention it but Hologram Man was directed by Richard Pepin so very likely a PM Entertainment production. It certainly looks so considering the insane action opening, good stunt production value, the presence of Joe Lara and the weak ass script.
Title: Re: RedLetterMedia Thread
Post by: Boredfrom on April 15, 2018, 09:03:29 AM
I’m more surprised that Rich knows about Faust and Mephistopheles.

Jay is not exactly knowledgeable about old monsters and myths, he thought that Baba Yaga “was funny” and Rich was making it out.

I'm always surprised by it considering he seems a fairly avid horror fan but yeah he was also surprised by the whole Asian flying head vampire flick.

Though I didn't remember that Faust is based on a edgy 90 comic book so that whole embarrassing "Faust ? Sounds like Spawn" bit wasn't in vain.

I feel that Rich wanted to complain a bit more but decided to just to be sarcastic to the fans when they mention how they are praising something that “subverts their expectations”. Also, the fact that they aknowledge that people that don’t follow the films will be totally clueless about what is going on but didn’t care was a little disconcerting.

Almost shocked at how much they liked Infinity War. Now, it WAS impressive to juggle all of those characters and settings, give everyone something to do, have an interesting villain as the main character, and be so long but not boring, and it was an enjoyable experience to watch....once. I can't imagine ever wanting to sit down and watch IW ever again.

I thought they were pretty fair (as always) to the Avengers. It was nice to see someone be fair to it. Seems most of internetdom either wants to gush about the movie or be all edgy and say it sucks worse than a ten dollar whore.

I think they gave credit where credit is due and called out the issues they saw.

I've mostly read interviews with him and he's abrasive, dismissive of reviewers, aggressively doesn't care what people thinks and hate movies who feed you meaning down your throat. Doubt and self reflection (especially on his own hubris) is in no short supply for him though and he'll often back and forth on big questions (notably Rampage has two edits, one leaning more in favour of capital punishment, the other against), saying radically opposed things depending on the interview (he alternates between praise and loathing for the sort of cops he depicted). He certainly loves to be provocative and a contrarian.

I truly believe that Mr Wiggles could be influential figure, but I also feel he may be more niche than he and his fans think given that RLM was not corrected almost immediately.

They should have done a google search first, though. lol The video is legitimately cheap and doesn’t portray Mr Wiggles as the living legend that he is “supposed” to be, but still...

Also, the CG in the 2011 movie is fucking godawful, but the movie itself is fine. I guess if you're a The Thing megafan (I mean why wouldn't you be I guess? :thinking ) it might be a slap in the face or something, but I thought it was surprisingly decent (after expecting the worst... seriously that CG is so fucking bad.)
Title: Re: RedLetterMedia Thread

Hearing about them cutting all the practical effects and replacing them with awful CGI at the last minute is just a kick in the balls.

But I read that the company that made the practical effects ended up making their own movie inspired by The Thing. I'll have to check that out.

For the record it was one of these two fucks that replaced the good effects with shit CG:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Marc_Abraham
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Eric_Newman_(producer) (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Eric_Newman_(producer))

Fun fact: the writer for The Thing 2011 also wrote the ANOES remake, Final Destination 5, Lights Out, and...

Arrival. For which he got an Oscar nom. :lol
Title: Re: RedLetterMedia Thread
Post by: Stro on July 17, 2018, 04:17:34 PM
ANOES might be the most offensive remake in recent years, because that's a series where your imagination is really the limit and today with CGI you could do crazy shit only dreamed of back in the 80s for dream sequence stuff, and they settled on doing worse looking CGI versions of things done in a low budget movie from 1984. It's so unimaginative that it's genuinely insulting as a fan of the series, far more than being just bad or even replacing Robert Englund.

They literally found a way to spend probably $50K on PS2 tier CGI to recreate a scene in the original done with a stretched out piece of spandex. :lol :lol :lol


:beli



There were a lot of horror remakes in the 00s/10s that were good, some even better than the originals, then ANOES comes along and is so fucking dull and the series most known for imaginative effects and death scenes just rehashes some familiar things but more "brutal" and with shitty color timing.

It's a mind fuck to imagine something as complex and involving so much advanced planning as a FX heavy film production being altered so radically so late at the drop of an hat. It's true that you often can only judge if the overall result is working when you start having an image closer to the final results but still... Supposedly the producers thought it looked dated, but like didn't you approve this choice and the treatment submitted every step of the way ? Baffling and it probably cost them a pretty penny too.

A shame because the practical effects looked more than decent in those short clips.

10/10 Female cop always gets her man
15 April 1999 | by Tim-16 – See all my reviews

Cec Verrell plays one super-tough cop in this action thriller. She is a beautiful lieutenant with the Honolulu P.D. fighting criminals non-stop. Whether shooting them down with a shotgun, M-16, or handgun, she will stop at nothing to get her man. Wanted dead or alive does not apply to this movie because she takes them (over a dozen victims, yes they must be said to be victims of this super cop) in always in the same condition... dead!

He hit on a couple good points I hadn't thought about, especially the comedy of errors section. I couldn't place my finger on why the movie's story felt so limp to me but I think that's a great explanation.

I don't think I agreed with about 20% of the review, and yeah, there wasn't much fire behind the mic, but it was a pretty good critique. Just not in the same tier as his best.

O SHIT BOYS

He took a dump on this shit movie. I was actually feeling it until Rey ditched Kylo making all the development before pointless. If they took out the C plot with Finn and Rose and cut it at the point where he puts his hand out I would have thought it was fantastic. Instead it promises to subvert Star Wars tradition and then reverts to the old ways within ten seconds. Crap movie. I don't want to see another Star Wars after it. i have not seen Solo and I will not see Episode IX.

Also good on them for showing how much Star Trek takes a steaming dump on Star Wars.

Star Wars fucking sucks.

I’m glad Mike is realizing that Kylo Ren being a intentional dumbass edgelord doesn’t make him a good character if they still playing it as a straight Vader Clone. Anakin was unintentionally bad and awful but there was at least a (shallow) sincerity than “IS LIKE VADER BUT DUMBER BE AFRAID” of Ren.

There is no way they ignore part 9. There is just too much anticipation for their reactions (to all things Star Wars) for them to ignore it.

I feel bad for them, because they clearly don't enjoy the franchise anymore but they are kind of forced to see this thing out.

I honestly think that Finn should be the main character of the trilogy over Rey, specially if they wanted to bring true about ending the bloodline and destiny stuff. Is ironic that the only thing that could make her interesting, after her mistery box was discovered to be empty, was teaming up with a awful wannabe character. Because that could actually change the paradigms of the franchise while keeping Luke and the new characters.

The TFA review is bad but because is clear he enjoyed TFA and was annoyed of people saying the prequels were “better”...

That’s why is surprising that he admits, I think in the HitB of the Last Jedi or Rogue One, that Lucas was more sincere than the Disney boardroom.

He even backhanded admitted in this review that Rey defeating Kylo Ren in the TFA is kind of dumb unless is intended to make Kylo Ren a overhyped dumbass.

They could do a whole Plinkett review just on the making of doc, which mostly throws Rian under the bus and blames him entirely for anything the fans didn't like about the movie by painting him out to be an out of depth nervous nelly who shouldn't have been hired in the first place.

Finn's first appearance being used for laughs in that bacta tank suit foreshadowed his character going to waste for the rest of the film. I guess in fairness, it also happened to others too.

Title: Re: RedLetterMedia Thread
Post by: Himu on August 29, 2018, 04:50:37 PM
Yesterday after my storm trooper turned Jedi master idea I thought of how *I* would reboot Star Wars.

Let’s play a game. What would you do if you had the task of making a new Star Wars trilogy?

Me? No empire, no rebels. No Skywalkers. Unlike the previous Star Wars that take place “a long time ago”, this one takes place in “the far future” enabling the setting to avoid the aesthetic and motifs of Lucas’ original trilogy and more futuristic (think Mass Effect). The setting is two nations (that make up multiple planets) are at war for territory.

The trilogy stars a black female rogue that does anything for cash with. She has a Twi’lek partner in crime. The first movie starts with them chasing a prey with a star ship chase and killing them for bounty. There’s another main character that’s a Jedi in training along with their master. The rogue happens upon a bounty for them that says kill on sight. They meet them and rather than kill, because although the rogue is full on bad, they still a hint of good in them. One nation is after the two Jedi because they feel they are a tremendous threat to the war effort given how many supporters they have. They go on adventures evading the nation that wants them as the jedis train. The rogue doesn’t believe in the force but tags along anyways for promises of riches. She witnesses first hand how the Jedi is trainednand unknowingly grows closer to the force by witnessing it. They build a lightsaber and everything which for some reason is red but the audience won’t think of it. The rogue is hinted as having some light but is still overwhelmingly dark to the point where you feel they’re past redemption. The Jedi apprentice is light but they have a hint of darkness but it shows that they are able to suppress it easily. Then in the climax of the first movie it’s revealed that the master is a Sith Lord and the apprentice, who has ignored their darkness decides to feed it and joins and goes full on KOTOR II.

The next film jumps ten years, and the same for the one after that.

The trilogy encompasses a thirty year war and shows how a low life piece of shit non believer becomes the greatest Jedi master in the galaxy as she fights her former friend to win the war of ideals.

How shit is this idea?

Title: Re: RedLetterMedia Thread
Post by: Nintex on August 29, 2018, 05:19:50 PM
My Star Wars

Act 1: We see a bunch of different interesting planets with cool characters. Fast cuts of space ships, bounty hunters, Jedi and Sith.
The CG effects burst off the screen. OH WOW

Act 2: We cut to the Senate. There Palpatine preps for debate on important issues such as migration, trade policy, economic policy and more.
We watch an hour or so of intergalactic political deliberations only equal in tension to the Frost/Nixon debates.

Act 3: We learn about Chewbacca's history. We watch Chewbacca go to school and learn Chewbacca things. He can talk in a way actually. Not only make noises. He likes his friends and has a love interest.
His planet gets invaded by space Nazi's. They gas all the other Chewbacca's to turn them into coats, some they skin alive and they make him watch. He makes a terrible noise.
That's the only noise he will ever use for communication. He loses his speech out of sheer horror. The Nazi's make jokes about furries while they're doing it.

Act 4: Palpatine is given the coats. "What is this garbage?" he says and asks his guards to trash them. "OH have you been genociding again?"
He quips to his guards: "I did Na-zi that coming". He says the bored Nazi's should find a new hobby, like fishing.

Act 5: Chewbacca has sneaked into a city aboard one of the space Nazi ships. He gets out and starts eating Nazi children and even babies. The movie cuts as Chewbacca devours a sweet little girl in gruesome detail

Act 6: We see an old man narrate and summarize what just happened. Cheap Rock Music. "STAY TUNED FOR THE NEXT INSTALLMENT OF STAR WARS"

For comedic effect the Nazi's have a droid voiced by Rich Evans. Which does nothing but laugh at the horrific stuff they do.
Chris Pratt plays Chewbacca, Whoopi Goldberg is his love interest. The fucked up Home Alone actor plays the space Nazi commander. If he's dead the role goes to Kevin Spacey.

He's not drunk, just tipsy :) Yang is someone who doesn't like power. He's not someone who sought rule. He's a history student who joined the war because of bad circumstances. So Yang or a Yang-like character with powers is....eh.

What Rah said as well. Star Wars is a fantasy adventure space opera. Not a space opera with...depth.  :doge So LOGH inspired wouldn't really work. The basic template of a really, really long war between two nation states would work and little else.
Title: Re: RedLetterMedia Thread
Post by: Himu on August 30, 2018, 01:57:00 AM
The above point is also why Star Wars kinda sucks as a universe and story-telling device. :idont

It took Rogue One for me to realize it, but Star Wars will only ever be lightsabers, Jedi, Sith. In my draft I wanted to limit that but I realize you can't or won't be Star Wars. Star Wars is a specific, very limited sort of thing that can tell only specific kinds of stories. Even Rogue One, which has no Jedi in the main cast still deals with things like Darth Vader cameos.

Star Wars should have just been the original trilogy.  It should have never, ever been revived beyond remasters. They decided to not only make a prequel trilogy but also a sequel trilogy and the result? Now almost everyone is tired of Star Wars. Star Wars has been over exposed and shown to be what it ultimately is: aside from a few movies it's nothing special. It isn't Gundam, which can tell all sorts of stories since its main theme is of war and how awful it is. Gundam can be hokey like Wing or Seed, but also deep and depressing like in 0080: War in the Pocket, or fantastical like in Turn A. It's not Star Trek. It's not LOGH. It's not BSG. It's not even Dune.

Star Wars is the Superman of space opera. It has very few tricks and is good at only specific things.

I don't really agree. While I don't agree with cindi that it has to be always be jedis and whatnot. But eh, I'm not really looking for mature adult Star Wars, A realistic and gritty Star wars with realistic characters with realistic problems. I don't want Law and Order Star Wars, 500 Days of Summer Star Wars, super adult Star Wars, and so on.

A lot of the EU stuff...er excuse me Legends...was pretty schlocky pulp. Even Thrawn is more that than it's politics or "gritty" or realistic. The only part that makes it seem so, is that it keeps the universe logically setup for events of ROTJ, unlike TFA and TLJ where they were like "whatever, fuck it, there's a rebellion again, and maybe an empire sorta, plus like a death star too, whaddya mean what happened to the New Republic? Didn't you see us blow up that single planet thus eliminating it totally?" Even KOTOR is pretty pulpy when you get down to it except for some of Obsidian's various sidetwists.

As bad as Lucas' whole decision two parts into his three six part story that it really should be "Anakin's Story" starring Anakin in two and a half parts. It at least was a concept to tie things together. (Even if he also subtly realized it was really Palpatine's Story.)

I still can't figure out what in the fuck is supposed to be tying these new films together other than they exist in the Star Wars franchise. Or like, what is even happening in them at this point. They're wiping out characters faster than Lucas was taking them out in the prequels and with half as much character development and establishment. And people are just constantly showing up places with plot drive to do one thing then disappearing, and there's never any kind of follow up. Why the hell aren't they doing the side stories for the side characters in the main films? Or fuck, the MAIN CHARACTERS in those films?

And the throwing out directors, reshooting things, major edits, etc. It's like Disney really did burn down everything Lucasarts/Lucasfilm gave them and told JJ and Kennedy to "get her going, times a wastin!"

Even the games are completely fucked up management wise! If DICE didn't have that slave farm to put out BF-mod-based FPSes until the end of time they'd have literally nothing else at this point. They ditched all the stuff Lucasarts gave em, they restarted and then dropped the Visceral titles, and then restarted it at Motive yet again only to shuffle it off to another studio and then go quiet on it. I think Respawn is probably running some kind of scam where they toss art over Titanfall then cash out. And even they're setting their game between the prequels and A New Hope. Nothing to do with the new films. I heard even that Android/iOS MOBA does shit sell throughs.

I really never saw this becoming such a management and production clusterfuck so quickly. I assumed all that shit they announced like Solo or the Boba Fett film or 1313 or whatever was like in pre-production and they were just announcing it early like with the MCU. If IX flatlines James Gunn is probably going to be thankful he got away from Disney before they murdered everyone they could get their hands on. (Or forced him onto Star Wars, just to kick him off, reshoot half the thing and then re-edit half the thing from there before throwing him under the bus.)

Star Wars isnt anything that needs to be preserved in it's original form for me, I'd just like it to be a vehicle to put budget behind interesting sci-fi or other stories, it's the preservation force that's really killing the franchise for me, hence why i had hope for the spin-offs until I saw it's just the same old crap  :idont
Title: Re: RedLetterMedia Thread
Post by: benjipwns on August 31, 2018, 08:36:31 AM
I think it's less of any kind of preservation force and more of a "we have no clue what the hell to do with it" and they've gone overly safe with it and now have even less of a clue what to do with it. They dumped the EU to supposedly unbind themselves, only to immediately stick themselves almost purely to the existing films and place nearly everything within Lucas's "no go" zone anyway.

They really don't seem to be truly planning things at this point except IX since they pulled back on everything after Rogue One, TLJ and Solo didn't meet their completely absurd expectations. They're secretly trying to dumb on Rian Johnson even though he made $1.3 billion and they handed him a trilogy of his own before the movie came out. They started slashing like mad through the side stories which were all already playing it safe crap like Obi-Wan or whatever.

Although that Obi-Wan film needs to happen no matter what, we all need to know canonically what made him age so much over just 19 years. Even non-Star Wars fans want to know this. Everyone who has ever lived wants to know this.

Gotta disagree with the review in that the movie looks great and I'm surprised that nowhere on the internet there's any talk about all the horrednous cgi. Episode 7 wasn't perfect in that regard, but at least tried to look less fake. Ep 8 went straight back into prequel-territory with all the shitty looking cgi animals and goblins etc everywhere cluttering up the screen. Then during the invasion on the snow salt planet, all I could think about is how the tanks in ESB look way more believable than their new cg equivalent.
Title: Re: RedLetterMedia Thread
Post by: chronovore on August 31, 2018, 10:48:08 AM
The above point is also why Star Wars kinda sucks as a universe and story-telling device. :idont

It took Rogue One for me to realize it, but Star Wars will only ever be lightsabers, Jedi, Sith. In my draft I wanted to limit that but I realize you can't or won't be Star Wars. Star Wars is a specific, very limited sort of thing that can tell only specific kinds of stories. Even Rogue One, which has no Jedi in the main cast still deals with things like Darth Vader cameos.

Star Wars should have just been the original trilogy.  It should have never, ever been revived beyond remasters. They decided to not only make a prequel trilogy but also a sequel trilogy and the result? Now almost everyone is tired of Star Wars. Star Wars has been over exposed and shown to be what it ultimately is: aside from a few movies it's nothing special. It isn't Gundam, which can tell all sorts of stories since its main theme is of war and how awful it is. Gundam can be hokey like Wing or Seed, but also deep and depressing like in 0080: War in the Pocket, or fantastical like in Turn A. It's not Star Trek. It's not LOGH. It's not BSG. It's not even Dune.

Star Wars is the Superman of space opera. It has very few tricks and is good at only specific things.

SOLO had none of those things.

"But it hasn’t lived up to expectations. The Last Jedi outdid Rogue One, but it didn’t match The Force Awakens’ box office turnout, and while Solo certainly set up the potential for follow-up films, it came in at just under $400 million at the global box office, which is by far the lowest-grossing live-action film of the entire franchise. (The pilot for The Clone Wars did a measly $68 million when it was dumped into theaters.)"

How crazy. I mean, yeah, a film a year is a bit much. I'm happy to have it, but I think their reasoning is off. SOLO made double its money back, at least, if it cost even $200M to make. That's a reasonable return, and it showcases Disney's greed if that's considered a failure. SOLO faltered because it was the blandest possible handling of a potentially interesting character.

Including the animated, low-budget, abridged Clone Wars theatrical release among that lot is just bad-on-bad reporting, like including one of the direct-to-video Disney sequel's errant theatrical showings among their tentpole release schedule.

To be fair, you have to look at the power of a license and gauge that with how much it made back. Solo, a movie based on arguably the most successful film property in history, doing double its budget is really not impressive. Especially when films like TLJ and TFA made 4-5 times their budget. And yes, I get that Solo is not one of the main line movies, so it's not going to do numbers like them, but still, I think a reasonable expectation might have been around 3x the budget, at least.

I have to say though, what really surprised me was TLJ doing worse than TFA. Completey ignoring the quality of either movie, from the buzz I heard, and it being a sequel, I thought TLJ easily surpassed TFA.

Post by: Rahxephon91 on September 23, 2018, 12:09:34 AM
Well I think it's also important that The Force Awakens was a way bigger deal and was a return of Star Wars. Sure Star Wars has had a consistent presence since the prequels ended, but it hadn't had a big event. That really gets people coming in to just check it out in theaters. My aunt who dosen't care about Star Wars went to see it because it was a big deal. She'll rent or never watch TLJ which is just the next Star Wars movie. Only it wasn't, Rogue One was and while you and me make a distinction between Rogue One, TFA, and TLJ. For a lot of casual viewers it's just another Star Wars movie. My mother came out of Rogue One saying it was good, but not as good as the last one because it did'nt have "that girl". That girl being Rey. My mom is'nt an idiot. She knew Rogue One was set in the past. She liked Solo and how the guy played a good young Han Solo, but these Star Wars movies are starting to blend together for her and probably a lot of other people. They are big movies to go see and have fun and then buy the toys for the kids. They were events and Disney kind of hurt that perception.

Marvel is'nt like that. The Avenger movies are events. The stand alone hero titles are just other installments. Some more popular then others, but I think every Marvel movie has the potential to go either way money wise if the product has something to it. Black Panther attracted a lot of attention because of it's note worthy subject matter. Ant Man did ok, but it was just another Marvel movie. The GOTG movies have been very funny comedies. Civil War seemed like an event. These movies also really live on word of mouth and thier marketing as much as they do the actual quality of the movie.
Title: Re: RedLetterMedia Thread
Post by: chronovore on September 24, 2018, 04:48:34 AM
My impression is that one of the reasons Marvel is seen as successful is that Feige has brought in blockbuster movies on relatively modest budgets. The Marvel movies were somewhat renowned that they came in on-time and on-budget, so part of it is how trouble free the franchises have been brought into port. SOLO was not only an "underperformer" in the box office, it also had a troubled production schedule IIRC.

I'd try to engage on why they dislike it, and try to point out that RLM's taken pot shots across the political spectrum.

And also they're totally right that Ghostbusters 2016 is dogshit and that has nothing to do with it starring women.

It's understandable that if you're in an echo chamber, you'll dislike what those around you dislike without knowing why. Like I said, try asking them specifically why they don't like RLM, and if it's for political reasons there's actually no reason to dislike them.

Now if they find the style and personalities annoying, fair enough. Nobody's gonna be universally liked.

I'm pretty much the same online as offline. So my friends know about my unorthodox political leanings.

With that said, they dislike it because they don't seem to 'get' it.
I think they're not entirely sure what is parody and what is serious as they're not familiar with all of RLM's work.
So mental illness and aaaaaaaaaids jokes seems super tasteless I guess?

Given how much they shit on him because of this ("When Rich calls you racist..."), I was not suprised. Where I was surprised is when he changed his opinion on certain topics (Apu stuff) so he is not exactly a alt right shitheel, just a dumb shitheel.

George Lucas puts out 3 pretty universally panned prequels, the whole "prequel era" being lambasted for nearly 20 years now.

Disney buys Star Wars, puts out 2 prequel movies, a two prequel cartoons, revives a previous prequel cartoon they ended to make a different prequel cartoon, and now is making a prequel TV series to one of the prequel movies.

Because past is:

A) To prequel like even when is good.

B) if they do their own thing people will inevitably compare it with the Old Republic stuff, they can barely escape with the EU influence with the current stuff.

C) if they do their own thing its probably going to be terrible.

But the Max Landis one had Rich dying over Double Down.

On the one hand Rich's monologue was great but on the other it was from Max Landis screaming shit at him desperately trying to make funny happen

He was just incredibly lucky the combination of Rich + Breen made it work

I thought this episode was really good, the intro was rote and boring like Mike even said but Macaulay fit in perfectly with the group and made it hilarious as they went along, culminating in the most appropriate ending which probably fulfilled a longstanding dream of Rich

that was the best Nerd episode in a while, maybe James put actual effort given Culk.

Maybe the reason why they took a lot of time with this plinketto was because there was a “release day” with a lot of other YT channels. Well played, Mack and Shawn.

They ultimately agreed with Brie Larson's sentiment, just not the way she put it out there, and it didn't impact their view of the movie, nor was any of that involved in the movie itself. One recommended it, the other didn't but not out of thinking it was terrible or bleh women :yuck but out of boredom of an unnecessary story in an already too bogged down with characters and MacGuffins universe. Absolutely nothing for RE types to get their jimmies rustled. The super cut of nothing but people of color/women doing pressers with Star Wars casts right after she said that people other than white dudes would like to talk to the Star Wars people  :lol

This isn't anything like their Ghostbusters 2016 discussion where they accused Sony (and Paul Feig)  of intentionally publicizing and possibly even encouraging the sexist backlash for PR purposes.

I used to like Josh/Wizard much more than Jack, but these days I think I like Jack a bit more. I do think he sometimes overplays his "omg what did the other guys just say??" face sometimes, but it usually makes the joke funnier.

On the other hand, I notice more awkward comments from Josh than I did before, like he'll say something that might be kinda funny but no one comments on it and so it just hangs there. Maybe I'm crazy though.

I get the impression Rich and Mike are childhood friends, and since Mike *is* RLM, I don't see Rich leaving unless he wants to. (And honestly, there's probably more of a chance of that happening, considering how cynical he is.)

I don't get that at all, I get that Mike and Jay have known each other since the 90s/early 00s, and everyone else came along later. I'm sure there's some nerd lore on Reddit or something, but I'm pretty sure Mike and Jay knew each other before they knew anyone else in the group.

I admit I could be wrong, but from their documentary "How Not to Make a Movie":

Quote
Mike: "Rich Evans was involved in my short films since probably mid-high school."

Rich: "We'd come up with crazy, stupid ideas. Things we'd never possibly film cause we didn't have the resources. Then we'd go to his house after school and try anyway."

Mike: "I'd put Rich in costumes in my parents' basement and then throw things at him. And uh, make him embarrass himself for my own amusement. (laughs)"

See also:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-gwbxh4_hiY

IIRC Mike met Jay through various indie Wisconsin film fests when they were in college. Mike had some "pre-RLM" "brand" (for lack of a better term) which had some collaborations with Jay, but Jay also had his own "brand" he was making things under -- mostly really sick, gross-out, John Waters-type short films, which actually got some decent reviews in local papers (I remember, because I remember trying to see how I could watch Jay's early stuff and only found the reviews.) In fact I think right before they joined and created RLM, Mike and Jay had some kind of a falling out. (Looking further into it left me with a grimy feeling so I stopped.)

Everyone else came onto RLM wayyyy later, probably post-Episode 1 review.

Almost everyone that's appeared on HITB or Best of The Worst pop up in the Episode 1 review. Pretty sure even the weirdo with the pedo stache from above.


Also :jeanluc at being friends with teenaged Rich Evans


What happened to the broads? There was the red head comedian who showed up in a few early BOTW and at least one HITB, and of course Jessi was around in a ton of stuff then vanished one day, never to be spoken of again.

Right. My take on those appearances in the Ep1 review is that Mike as RLM was just interviewing his friends (I can't imagine RLM was more than him and Jay back then), some of whom he later convinced to join RLM proper. Maybe. Who knows.

Most people seem to think Mike and Jessi were dating and had a falling out and they are under no obligation to give anyone further closure about their personal lives

They are very private people in general, I think the most "behind the scenes" info anyone got was during PreRec streams which lent themselves to more off-the-cuff comments from Jack and Rich

Once on PreRec someone asked why Jessi wasn't ever on the show anymore, and Jack pointedly said it was because in order to appear in videos a person must have the camera pointed at them, and it was not being pointed at her
Title: Re: RedLetterMedia Thread
Post by: Stro on April 12, 2019, 06:01:28 PM
There are definitely vids long after she stopped appearing on camera where you could still hear her laughing at stuff in the background and whatnot. That actually makes it weirder to me.
Title: Re: RedLetterMedia Thread
Post by: Tasty on April 12, 2019, 06:04:19 PM
Gillian Bellinger (redhead comedian) moved to LA and I think she's still on good terms with them.

Jessi was on good enough terms in ~2013 to return for How Not to Make a Movie (since she was in Gorilla Interrupted), but she's actually a musician and I wouldn't be surprised if she was focusing more on that career.

Edit- Her last BotW was 2014, maybe she isn't on good terms anymore.

Ah well, we'll always have the Thunderpants review.

Maybe being a woman in the spotlight of a mostly male audience got to her, so she stopped going in front of the camera but stayed on at RLM to help since she liked the people.

To be fair, even as cynical as they are (and Mike in particular), they did seem to genuinely enjoy and be pleasantly surprised by Infinity War, and I think Mike even said on a video earlier this year that he's looking forward to seeing how it all ends. So for Endgame in particular I don't get the impression they're doing it out of obligation; Jay especially has strong feelings about the Guardians of the Galaxy characters because of James Gunn's involvement.

To be fair though, some of their best HitB's come from "obligatory" movies. The X-Men: Apocalypse review is hysterical. :lol

I think they genuinely enjoy the movies, I just dont think they are worth discussing for 40 minutes outside of a plot overview, there's not much to say about these films, they're shot the same, feature the same beats, same type of dialogue etc, I can only really think of the last Thor/GotG (similar), Ant Man 1 and the Captain America with bucky that had differences worth discussing outside of the plot.

It's kind of hard for them not to recommend a Marvel movie. They're all a baseline of definitely watchable/mostly enjoyable except one or two, they're not individually complicated, all have something for everyone, and then the overlapping part of a 22 movie adds to it. There's really not a legitimate reason either of them could tell their audience not to see the newest Marvel movie unless you're already sick of them and weren't going to see it anyway.

End Game Spoilers below

spoiler (click to show/hide)
It adds almost nothing whatsoever to End Game. Captain Marvel is in I believe 3 scenes total in the entire movie and you don't need to know shit about her because all you need to know about her (she's like super duper powerful) is shown to you without anyone even saying her name or mentioning her for 2 hours and 45 minutes until she shows up at the end to get punched out of frame with a comical sound effect. There's nothing from her movie that carries over at all, and I know this because I didn't see Captain Marvel and nothing carried over because she was on screen for maybe 6 minutes and had 2-3 lines.

I wouldn’t say it’s nitpicking. Trek presented professionals doing their job. The depth came from the the questions it raised as people with different viewpoints and cultures could solve problems together. It didn’t glorify science. In fact, there are some episodes were actually critical of science. Star Trek showed a hopeful future. It raised questions. It did not navel gaze.

A little backstory... Rich and I will be doing a discussion on Season 2 of Discovery. In my notes I wanted to talk about the TERRIBLE AND INSANE technobabble. Now I know technobabble is a major part of Star Trek, but it has never been so nonsensical and written by people that think you can suck up a black hole and shoot it at someone. After a run of the worst, most impossibly stupid things being said some character would actually say, "Science, fuck yeah" or "I like science"... it was as if the writers were patting themselves on the back for being so awesome at writing. So, in our discussion I wanted to talk about that. First I wrote some dialog and was planning to read it aloud. Then I thought, well let's shoot a little scene acting it out - like a table read. That turned into actually trying to shoot it like it was on Discovery. Then instead of inserting that into the STD S2 video we decided to make it it's own little video as an ad. So that's that! -Mike

Movie plot
Quote from: Wikipedia
By combining the bracelet, the prize inside his friend's old cereal box, and a The Legend of Zelda map featured in the first-ever issue of Nintendo Power, Sam is able to find a location that doesn't show on web mapping where he finds a man and three women in a hut. The man reveals the answer to Sam's investigation: through history a selected few wealthy men like himself choose to lock themselves into underground bunkers similar to the one Sam previously discovered in order for their souls to "ascend" similar to Egyptian Pharaohs, while taking three wives to go with them. He confirms that Sarah and her roommates were Jefferson Sevence's wives, and that their deaths were faked in order for the four of them to ascend. Once they went inside their bunker, it was sealed and cannot be left. However the process takes months and they can actually be contacted via videotelephony. Sam speaks with Sarah, who confirms that she entered the bunker on her own will and that she's at peace with her fate. Since Sarah leaving the bunker is not an option, the two share an emotional farewell and hang up for good.

Sam unexpectedly passes out along with the man and his three wives, just as the Homeless King arrives. The Homeless King captures Sam, and when he finds dog biscuits in his pocket it is heavily implied that Sam is the Dog Killer who's wreaked havoc across Los Angeles. Sam alludes to a painful breakup with his girlfriend and their dog, and the despair he felt knowing they'd never get back together and would never see his dog again. The Homeless King eventually lets him go, stating that the members of the conspiracy probably won't kill Sam, although he is not certain. When he comes back to his apartment complex, Sam spends the night with a neighbor whose parrot keeps on saying incomprehensible words, although she too does not know what words he is saying. From her balcony, Sam sees his landlord and a police lady entering his apartment to evict him because he didn't pay his rent. The two realize that the wall has been painted with a strange symbol, which Sam knows to be a message left by the conspiracy members to remind him to keep quiet.

Mike's "cover" analogy is actually spot-on for a some of these reboots... honestly if studios would lean into that more and be like "Yeah this is a one-off 'cover' and not intended to be the springboard for a line of ever-shittier sequels" I might be more on board with reboots in general.

Ok so

What’s the rlm origin story? Did they go to film school or what?

I might have some posts handy, let me see:



---

I get the impression Rich and Mike are childhood friends, and since Mike *is* RLM, I don't see Rich leaving unless he wants to. (And honestly, there's probably more of a chance of that happening, considering how cynical he is.)

I don't get that at all, I get that Mike and Jay have known each other since the 90s/early 00s, and everyone else came along later. I'm sure there's some nerd lore on Reddit or something, but I'm pretty sure Mike and Jay knew each other before they knew anyone else in the group.

I admit I could be wrong, but from their documentary "How Not to Make a Movie":

Quote
Mike: "Rich Evans was involved in my short films since probably mid-high school."

Rich: "We'd come up with crazy, stupid ideas. Things we'd never possibly film cause we didn't have the resources. Then we'd go to his house after school and try anyway."

Mike: "I'd put Rich in costumes in my parents' basement and then throw things at him. And uh, make him embarrass himself for my own amusement. (laughs)"

See also:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-gwbxh4_hiY

IIRC Mike met Jay through various indie Wisconsin film fests when they were in college. Mike had some "pre-RLM" "brand" (for lack of a better term) which had some collaborations with Jay, but Jay also had his own "brand" he was making things under -- mostly really sick, gross-out, John Waters-type short films, which actually got some decent reviews in local papers (I remember, because I remember trying to see how I could watch Jay's early stuff and only found the reviews.) In fact I think right before they joined and created RLM, Mike and Jay had some kind of a falling out. (Looking further into it left me with a grimy feeling so I stopped.)

Everyone else came onto RLM wayyyy later, probably post-Episode 1 review.

---

Almost everyone that's appeared on HITB or Best of The Worst pop up in the Episode 1 review. Pretty sure even the weirdo with the pedo stache from above.


Also :jeanluc at being friends with teenaged Rich Evans

Right. My take on those appearances in the Ep1 review is that Mike as RLM was just interviewing his friends (I can't imagine RLM was more than him and Jay back then), some of whom he later convinced to join RLM proper. Maybe. Who knows.

---

Edit- Mike met Jay on a filmmaker forum in 1999. There ya go. :P

Yeah that's why I used the /middle class because I was unsure and going into film school is kind of a marker here. But there's obviously a lot of blue collar affectation from the whole VCR repair skit to the Midwestern, earnest, low brow, beer drinking, DIY and down to earth style.

Lot of their success probably has to do because nerds audiences loves nothing better than their own kin and they instantly relate to RLM. I know I do. They're living the dream of having become real movie critics from their mancave without having to "compromise" into what was the usual cursus honorum of the cultural elite.

To be honest I don't think their filmmaking is all that hot but they're self aware enough about that to avoid the Nostalgia Critic / Channel Awesome cringe combo of really obnoxious pretentiousness and total technical ineptitude.

Title: Re: RedLetterMedia Thread
Post by: Boredfrom on July 15, 2019, 12:30:32 PM
I dunno if the world building was a problem. I feel it is more easy to explain that Lucas is not a good writer than this stuff getting in the way. If anything, Disney’s Star Wars is not even interested in setting up their villians or genuinely explain anything because “old Star Wars did the same”.

I think Knights of The Old Republic is loved because they did what prequel trilogy tried to do and failed (Jedi vs Sith and building a new setting). You can say this games stores are probably not going work the same if adapted as films, but is there a good backbone that Disney could ruin use.

There is nothing wrong with explaining how a Jedi build a lightsaber if there is an actual emotional resonance on it than “I am applauding because I recognize this”.

The problem will always be that film and tv writers, like the Bad Robot alumni, are more concerned about thrills than anything else. I feel that they don’t even care about characters in particular. I am surprised that RLM genuinely thought that Kylo Ren was planned to be something beyond “evil dipshit moron”, it was clear to me since Force Awakens that Disney was serious with Kylo Ren being a straight  Dark Vader clone rather than a parody or deconstruction. Snoke was supposed to be the Emperor without the charisma and Rey is suppose to be Luke with tits.
Title: Re: RedLetterMedia Thread
Post by: Tasty on July 15, 2019, 01:01:09 PM
With Kylo I think people were mostly fooled because Adam Driver adds a lot to the character with his performance, and you get much more of a "torn between two sides" impression after watching him on screen vs. reading his lines on a page.

Snoke on the other hand is in so few scenes and is so CG'd up that his lack of character, backstory, and arc, are plainly apparent. This was probably a tradeoff the story group acknowledged during The Force Awakens, with the idea they'd set him up later... but then Johnson offed him, with no real way to give a satisfying explanation for him in Rian's own movie (something he even admitted to (https://www.cinemablend.com/news/1829709/rian-johnson-further-explains-his-decision-not-to-reveal-more-about-snoke) after the premiere.)
Title: Re: RedLetterMedia Thread
Post by: Himu on July 15, 2019, 01:05:12 PM
I agree with the guys. I legitimately liked the whole Luke breaks with the force thing. I also loved the tension between Kylo and Rey. If it all paid off I would have loved the movie, Finn/Rose aside. Two potential lovers on different sides of the Force is interesting to me.

I know Luke's characterization in TLJ wasn't popular with the Star Wars fanboys but I liked that shit. That was fucking different and I genuinely found it interesting and believed that Luke Skywalker could actually get to that point. The first half of the movie really sets the table to be a damn good meal, and the second half does a pull the table cloth trick and every dish comes crashing to the floor.

Shame.

Title: Re: RedLetterMedia Thread
Post by: Himu on July 15, 2019, 01:14:02 PM
I think that in the end a lot of this made TLJ even more irksome for me: because I liked where they were heading. A lot of the ideas are fantastic but so poorly executed which makes it even more infuriating because it legitimately could have been the one of the best Star Wars films. A lot of the ideas, on paper, are fantastic. But that makes it even more annoying because TLJ isn't outright bad. There's plenty of potential there.
Title: Re: RedLetterMedia Thread

There are so many ways it could've gone that would be interesting to explore

Although I will say Luke being a hermit in the second movie sure is a lot like poetry, it rhymes

Would've been cool if he hadn't died and instead realized he had to come out of retirement to be a badass in the third movie or something

Like the old master who only takes 5 seconds to resolve the situation when pressed and you realize not to fuck with him

And then when even he is threatened later on you know it's a significant threat

Maybe that's still leaning too fanboyish but it's something, anything other than what they ended up doing

Title: Re: RedLetterMedia Thread
Post by: Boredfrom on July 15, 2019, 03:04:29 PM
I think I posted it here, but at an early screening of TLJ, before any impressions were up, I think I said something to the effect of 'this was the first Star Wars movie that I came out of actively not liking.' (Also something about almost bursting out laughing when Leia's body was vacuumed out to space.)

There's not even a honeymoon period with these films like there were with the prequels, I feel like they bring absolutely nothing to the table... it's more of a CW show type of thing where you keep watching to see where they go next.

Did anyone actually like TLJ as an individual movie on its own merits?

Which is ironic given that this films are genuinely better than the prequels.

I dunno, for all his faults, George Lucas is a good “ideas man” even if is just retreat of old stuff. I feel people liked Star Wars more when there was a illusion of a grandiose story arc rather than an blatant  “REMEMBER NEW HOPE?”.

round deflector dish = the filmmakers just didn't notice or care, or possibly will be a throwaway line where Lando fixed it up the way it used to be

Luke's lightsaber = Rey repaired it, there's a visible black area in the center where the split would be, and it allows them to do a montage of her repairing the lightsaber while Kylo repairs his helmet, it's so symbolic

plus we have seen and know about some new characters in the film and if you're time traveling to go revisit old characters you don't also introduce new

Abrams "fuck it" means it's going to be a glorious mess somehow but I don't see what they would do with time travel




although I like the idea of Rey being Shmi Skywalker because then it goes back to, she was a nobody from nowhere but ALSO started the most powerful family in the galaxy, which means anybody can be special, just like those little kids at the end of TLJ

If Rey is Shmi what does it mean that she had the hots for her great-grandson in TLJ?

Though I guess incest and Star Wars have always had each other.

This worries the most  :lol

- The Emperor is not dead, or he's reincarnated or whatever
- Kylo <3 Rey
- The Emperor corrupts Kylo
- A battle takes place near a portal that the Emperor wants to use to travel back in time
- Kylo holds back the emperor by sacrificing himself
- Rey jumps into the portal, finds herself on Tatooine pregnant with the son of Kylo: Anakin

At one point Mike is talking and the guy wants to say something and kind of makes some annoyed face, cut, and then he pretending to yawn to now be annoyed he can't get through Mike's chatter.

Mac at one point had 50 million dollars, this is a guy who still can probably do anything he wants in life, and he chooses to spend his time wandering Milwaukee with a couple of hack frauds while pointing at things

Counter point: He probably doesn't have any money left since he's sparsely worked since 1994 and most of those roles have been in shorts, single episodes of TV, and online related nonsense.

I hope it isn't sacrilegious to say this here and maybe it's just me, but I think Best of the Worst is getting kind of old, or rather, tired. There simply isn't enough substance to make these episodes that long. We haven't quite reached the breaking point, but there are warning signs, like having celebrity guest stars.

mike basically didn't say a word and when he did he couldn't find his thought

he was completely gone

he usually has an impassioned argument to make about why he's making a troll pic for best of the worst but he just kinda named a movie, was asked why he picked it, and then he edited out his own response, if he even made one

I hope he was just incredibly drunk and isn't actually suffering from some kind of dementia  :mike

if I had to venture a guess he was probably in shock with the night's movies having left such a bad impression on a celebrity guest

So it's not so much them trying to breath new life into a dead format as much as it's a natural fit for it when they get celebrity guests.

That and Patton went to a TON of shit movies back in the day. He's even written a goddamn memoir about it (https://www.amazon.com/Silver-Screen-Fiend-Learning-Addiction/dp/B01LTHXIUG)

I dont think Snyder tried to do "Superheroes are monster that will kill us if they were real", he is just an abysmal writer that thinks "This looks cool! Never mind it doesnt work here or in this propierty". I feel Warner Studios just doesnt get how actual dark superhero stories work in general, and I suppose Marvel Studios just doesnt even bother.

I think Ennis, even if is clear he hates superheroes, knows why they work and is able to create stories about how much he hates superheroes.

I’m pretty sure he has not made secret his disdain for superheroes. He is like Warren Ellis in being okay with writing Cape stuff as long it pays well or gives them free hand. 

Millar is just a outright misanthropist.

I'm not super familiar with Millar but the few I read was insufferable, especially Wanted and I found it a lot more grating and morally repugnant than anything I read by Ennis though they superficially come from the same sort of school (Both started in 2000 AD / Dredd, right ?). Ennis never struck me as a misanthrope or viewing his readers with contempt. There always was some genuine affection for the freaks and monsters of his stories and I always felt the edginess always had some purpose (even for Crossed). Also plenty of good fun to be had with him. But I didn't read anything by him in a long time and already by the time he was doing the Punisher Marvel Knights run I felt Ennis was maybe a victim of his own success and the tone was getting a bit samey.

I got your twisted pair right here.
RLM is alt-right not because of anything they say about Star Wars. Their racist attacks on minorities and mocking of women and feminism has tended to not be in Star Wars videos. Most of their most egregious examples of strong racist and sexist views have been in Marvel videos in recent years.

We all know they are racist. We all know they are sexist. Just some are willing to look past it for entertainment value. Pretending like they aren’t actually alt-right is not something anyone fans or otherwise should entertain in because that is a dangerous slippery slope. “I like them so their alt-right behavior must not actually be alt-right” is not a valid viewpoint here. Plenty of people here and all over watch content from awful people with horrible ideologies because they look past it for entertainment value, but let’s not pretend their awful views don’t actually exist.

They spout alt-right ideology. Constantly. That is clearly not up for debate anymore given the mountains of evidence. No one can watch the endless videos of them making racist comments and mocking of feminism and women and come away thinking they aren’t alt-right, let’s be honest.

As a kid I thought The Exorcist was boring trash, as an adult I think it's not exactly spooky but is an excellently crafted movie that still stands so high in the best horror movies world because of its high quality as a non-genre film. It's excellent 70s filmmaking :jeb

I don't have a lot of memories but the third Exorcist has unsettling, spooky parts. The Heretic is a trainwreck trying to juggle some high concepts (telepathy, evil as a disease /meme ?) but it's mostly a bore with only a few fulgurances. A bloated mess but partly palatable one because Boorman sure has an unique way. That theme is great/hilarious tho.

As to Friedkin's rough, rude and abusive behaviour on set, I would note he has sometimes expressed regrets or at least some reflection (on the car chases for instance, saying he endangered lives, and that if he had to do it again, he wouldn't and nobody should, with how films can be made today) in long form interviews from the last... 15 to 20 years ? Depends on bit on which one you read, perhaps, because he has an habit of changing his mind on a dime and gets a kick out of provocation (though as far I know, not so much on that specifically).

sorry to bump this, no the joker review is not posted yet

wanted to speculate on what they will say about it

as I was watching it I kept hearing Jay in the back of my mind saying "we get it" because the whole movie kept overexplaining itself at every turn, whether jokes or making statements on mental health

like when his neighbor comes home to discover him and is freaked out and says "your name is Arthur, right?  from down the hall?" and it's like
we got it, they never really met, it was his delusion, but no they need to show us scenes of him alone to explain

when the little person from work says "hey, the cops never questioned me," just leave a long pause, the cops know it wasn't a short person, got it

I think they'll like it but with reservations, they'll probably say any time anything Batman was referenced it was like whiplash drawing them out of the film

they'll probably like it until the ending when Joker looks into the camera and says "I am mentally ill and have nothing left to live for, you are bad man"

overall I expect it to be called a fusion of a dark character study with a popcorn comic movie, mental illness for the popcorn crowd, but still probably too weird and dark for grandma

yeah I hope they don't spend too long on it, they at least pay lip service but they also tend to try to focus on the actual film

this time around they might talk about how/whether controversy ends up affecting your final perception of the film, you can't just enjoy it for what it is, you're left with a sense of "THIS is what everyone was up in arms over?"

Everything else, though :yikes It feels and looks like a made for TV sequel.

the Patton Oswalt episode is the best example, he barely says a word the whole time and whenever he does he embarrasses himself, or you can tell he was about to say something and they cut out whatever he said

I think they still are in “Force Awakens is the Best Soft Reboot” mentality. Having the same story in such short period of time without Arnold or Linda would have been way worse than they showing themselves as elderly action starts.

I think the idea of Skynet being gone but having still a lot of Terminators around while having a middle age John Connor around would have been probably way better than just another “judgement day is inevitable”. Hell, you can still have that to an extent without using more time travel or having the thread of “machines taking over” so explicit.

I mean most of the internet is like "this is just Stranger Things but with the Ghostbuster's IP" (I guess because of the kids), so I can see why RLM wouldn't be so opposed to it. Given they have a gay on staff, so they have a requisite to hate vagina-taxes (Ghostbuster's: Now Women!) in their films. :p

Jay's right in that this trailer seems to be trying hard to not be "Ghostbusters: 2016" with it's impressions. Which is fine and all, but they need to show that they learned WHY folks didn't like the 2016 film (and it wasn't the women).

so Mike loves goofy schlock, and is also a strong proponent of "show don't tell," letting things breathe, he gets a migraine when movies are just a rollercoaster of cg explosions

based on impressions of rise of skywalker I think he's gonna hate the fact that so much of the runtime is literal spoken exposition to explain what's going on and why, and that the pacing is rushed and confused because it's 2 movies packed into one movie

I don't expect them to be real passionate about how bad it is, I expect it to be more like a disappointed parent

and more than anything else it sounds like there is no other trilogy that feels so strongly like a direct conversation between two filmmakers arguing back and forth, which I expect them to talk about


Jay will be disappointed that there isn't enough body horror centered around the emperor and his business
Title: Re: RedLetterMedia Thread

I think they may get more visceral given how much they defended Force Awakens at first. I think they expected it to be a mess, but not to the point of Abrams just indulging himself.

A lot of problems of the sequel trilogy started with Force Awakens being so painfully similar to New Hope and JJ Abrams thinking on set pieces rather than in a coherent story. They joked about the Sith Trooper stuff but Captain Phasma was as ridiculous (chrome stormtrooper that is a total badass but not really), all the warning signs were there.

Post by: Boredfrom on December 18, 2019, 01:44:44 PM
I feel Abrams doesn’t get anything beyond nostalgia filter and his mystery box stuff has always being more about selling his shortcomings as a creative as some sort of new way to do storytelling (no shit that most of the time the mystery is better than the solution).

To me, Abrams is a more competent Zack Snyder (set pieces and hype over story and coherence) and mostly a idea man rather than a good creative.

Still blows my mind that they thought Kylo Ren was a compelling character or he coming as a pussy ass Edgelord was intentional. I was laughing my ass off when he killed Han Solo, was so lame.

I dunno, i think he could've worked, if they started from a solid arc for the trilogy, i'm not sure that was up to him.
I mean the movies work on a visual level, thjey are exciting and have a good rhythm, all the things the prequels lacked.
The problem is they clearly didn't plan out the trilogy as one coherent story, and so VII set up something, VIII shits on it, then IX shits on VIII.

It's honestly amazing to me, that a multi billion dollar company, working on a billion dollar franchise, didn't have that shit on LOCK, before even starting with the casting.

People like Kasdan came back for it. :yeshrug

It's pointless to play the guessing game with what went wrong behind the scenes, since we can't know, there probably was the usual clusterfuck of people trying to jam their opinion in, creatng this Frankenstein's monster of a trilogy.

What we can see, is what works and what doesn't, though.

The new characters worked as a jumping off point; they weren't just carbon copies of the old ones, they were charming and energetic enough, they could've easily carried the trilogy.
But then they didn't give them a clear arc, and they muddled the water with the constant call backs and obsessing, almost, with the old cast.

But when you start off with a 3rd Death Star, i guess it's a sign of things to come.

I'll add that turning Star Wars, from a universe of space adventures, into the endless saga about the "Skywalker lineage", was always a dumbass move; it killed its potential for creativity.

Luke & Anakin don't even have the same arc between themselves in the first place.

That they don't do anything with them, is my point, they followed the classic archetypes, but had potential to go in different directions.
Rey grew up completely alone for example, something to use to give her a different twist on how she'd approach the journey, Finn being an ex trooper, and Poe... ok, he didn't have much beyond Isaac's charisma.
I don't even mind Kylo being an angsty fanboy like you do, i think it's something that could've been interesting to explore.

Instead they didn't do anything with any of it, not in the first movie, not in the following one (and presumably not in the last one).

But that is the point, everybody thought they were going to explore him and not playing it like a straight Vader when it was clear he WAS intended as a serious Vader clone. The fact that only now they realized “HOLY FUCK HE IS LAME AS FUCK AND WE JUST KILL SNORKEL. BRING THE SHEEV BACK” feels they played him like a serious threat until now. There was never a serious attempt to explore him a a pathetic parody because Abrams wrote him as “cool badass dude with a legion of force users knights at his side”.

You seem to be under the impression that i liked what they did with these characters? ???
I said they had the elements to make them interesting, by giving them clear arcs, but they didn't do anything with them.

Regarding Kylo though, i think the intention to make him somewhat goofy was there from/at the start, or they wouldn't have included the scene with the Stormtroopers comically walking away from one of his hissy fits.

But then the opening prank call of VIII, makes me question if they know what tonal concistency is in the first place.

No, I was saying this potential was never there or was just wishful thinking. Abrams totally wanted Rey to be another chosen one from a desert planet and Kylo Ren is just a Darth Vader clone. He is not that a smart of a writer to explore the difference of this characters with their OG counterparts  and Disney is not a creatively smart company enough to realize this in the first place

Oh really? I thought he had a health issue and/or he soured on alcohol completely because of his family.

I usually don't like gossiping about people this way but I've always been so curious about these guys for some reason. 😬

In any case it doesn't matter, as long as Rich is happy. :)

Yeah I think it was he mainly didn't like the feeling of being drunk but maybe some other stuff could be in the backround as well, just from what I remember when I looked it up ages ago.

Yeah me neither, but I like these guys and it was always somewhat weird you had everyone else getting destroyed and Rich just there trying to hold things together somehow.

I suppose if it was a health issue or some kind of major moral stand, Mike (even drunk Mike) wouldn't have joked about putting that beer to his lips on that one BotW a while ago (when Rich didn't drink it, it spilt on his shirt. :lol)

So you're probably right and I learned something new~

They don’t watch the cartoons.    :trumps

In that regard I was surprised they didn’t start to complain about the cliffhanger and certain lightsaber. And more surprised they acknowledged the Clone Wars cartoon exists with that clip.


I’m pretty sure a lot of people already flooding with messages of “Watch clone wars is good and Filoni is the true god”.

It seems not, is a direct connection with the cartoons (Filoni was one the main writers that of the cartoons)

I like both Tron movies for what they are. The first one drags at times and the soundtrack is borderline annoying, but I don't think the story is hard to understand. The second movie is much more convoluted, but with an awesome soundtrack.
Anyway, I think both movies are better than they are giving them credit for.

They were pretty cherry-picking with their counter examples, though. I m not a exactly a Star Trek fan but I could tell Mike tried to hammer a point that the contexts of those episodes may not hold.

Is Mike at his worst in his analysis, when he tries to hammer a point that maybe is more a visceral one that a thoughtful one.

I basically agree with everything they said. Nothing in the script really worked for me, the "big scene" of Picard going on Fox News to defend Romulans humanity is dumb ass schlock writing.

This review will age a lot better in a few weeks once we've accepted the Picard show as well meaning but terribly written trash.

I dunno about the ending rant. I agree with overall point of Hollywood patting themselves as n the back and that is refreshing hearing a discourse just about how much someone loves making films... but I seriously doubt Bong joon ho thinks that way as. As they noted, Parasite is a very political film just not in your nose, but I feel that the Koreans celebrities and super artists are probably not that different political wise as Joaquin Phoenix while still living way better than the normal Korean citizen.

I don’t feel fair mocking Joaquin Phoenix mumbled all over the place speech when it feels that may come from a place of genuine feelings (I think he rarely name drops his dead brother, for example) like Bong Joon Ho citing and thanking Scorsese.

I think we can all agree that Abrams is a hack. Bringing back the Emperor, and with zero on-screen explanation was quite unforgivable. Then again, almost everything about the new trilogy was awful and not well thought out with no planning ahead, so it's consistent that way.

The best way to deal with this train wreck would be to declare the new movies non-canonical and start afresh maybe a decade from now.
Come up with an interesting story that takes place a couple of decades after the Emperor is (permanently!) killed in Episode VI and his empire is destroyed, and after the Republic is rebuilt. New villains, new heroes.

On the other hand, as it stands now I am perfectly fine with never watching another Star Wars movie; at least not in a cinema. It's dead, Jim.

The Hunt is the only one that has looked interesting to me so far, if only because it's (currently) topical with a Hunger Games bent of "the rich are hunting the poor."

Production looks like hot trash, but could be entertaining. :yeshrug

Quote from: Wikipedia
The Hollywood Reporter wrote that there were a pair of test screenings for the film which garnered "negative reactions". The second screening was held on August 6, 2019, in Los Angeles, in which "audience members were again expressing discomfort with the politics" of it, an issue Universal had not foreseen (although other studios had initially passed on the script for that very reason). In a statement to Variety, Universal pushed back on a report that test audiences had been uncomfortable with the film's political slant, and also countered claims that the script had originally had a politically explosive title.[29] "While some outlets have indicated that test screenings for The Hunt resulted in negative audience feedback; in fact, the film was very well-received and tallied one of the highest test scores for an original Blumhouse film," a Universal spokesperson said. "Additionally, no audience members in attendance at the test screening expressed discomfort with any political discussion in the film. While reports also say The Hunt was formerly titled Red State vs. Blue State, that was never the working title for the film at any point throughout the development process, nor appeared on any status reports under that name."[29]

Prior to the film's initial shelving, the film attracted criticism from some of the media as an alleged portrayal of liberal elitists hunting supporters of Donald Trump.[22][30] Trump himself issued a tweet on August 9, 2019, calling "Liberal Hollywood" "[r]acist at the highest level" and writing: "The movie coming out is made in order to inflame and cause chaos", adding "They create their own violence, and then try to blame others". Although Trump did not specify the name of the film, news vehicles believed that was most likely a reference to The Hunt.[30][31][32] Some commentators, such as columnists for The Atlantic and The National Review, argued that the film actually had a right-wing, anti-liberal tone that was misinterpreted by conservative critics of the film.[26]

It can't be worse than their previous movie Gorilla Interrupted, which I did buy. It's funny and mildly watchable if you're on a substance or two.

The accompanying documentary, however, "How Not to Make a Movie," made it totally worth it though. RLM does really great behind the scenes stuff, so I'm excited for the Space Cop BTS coming out soon.

That said I haven't had the courage to either buy or download it either. :lol

Okay so I watched most of Space Cop with the commentary track last night. It's watchable with the commentary, but also I think they released the commentary track by itself and you really don't need to watch the movie itself with it.

The TLDR of it is:

Anything that looks good is done by the Canadians

Everything that looks like shit is done by Mike and/or Rich

They kind of treat it like it is a real movie at times

It is a terrible movie, not even in a BOTW "lol these delusional fools" kind of way

Quote
Mike Stoklasa has experience as a writer, director, and actor, mostly in animation. On Smiling Friends, he voices Desmond. He also founded RedLetterMedia, an independent film production company and seems pretty busy outside of his stint on the Adult Swim special. Because of his experience in all things independent, there’s no reason to suggest Mike wouldn't also be into working on Smiling Friends more, should it get picked up as a regular series.

For now, Smiling Friends is still a standalone animation special that Adult Swim aired, which garnered thousands of overnight fans and counting. If those same fans keep inundating Twitter with their call for more episodes, maybe Adult Swim will take a hint. Until then, you’ll just have to watch the special on repeat.

Smiling Friends is available for streaming on the Adult Swim website and app.

Gotta disagree with them on $20 being a good rental price for digital movies. :doge It's just 1/0's being put down my pipe and given to me for like 2 days to watch ONCE. I'm sorry, but that's nearly movie ticket price (bar gas/food/other shit) and at that point it's like "but why would I spend $5 more for the convenience of staying home? I don't even get to keep it!"

Yeah, there's no way I'd pay $20 (current value, soon to be much lower thanks to crazy money printing) to watch a single movie at home once and not even own it. They seem to be slightly out of touch.
Title: Re: RedLetterMedia Thread
Post by: Stro on April 19, 2020, 07:36:27 PM
$20 to view at home and own would be fine. Or maybe a little extra since buying the disc is around $20, so maybe bump it to $25-30, you get a theater movie at home, but also get to keep it.

I think they made a decent point justifying that price as it might be too much for a solo watcher, but for like, a family who'd normally go as a group its actually a big saving, especially factoring in cheaper snacks + drinks

It's not exactly the same thing but a lot of good comics are pretty bad at comedy movies in general (all roles, not just direction).
And aside for a handful of Nouvelle Vague critics from Les Cahiers du Cinéma and some similar cases for other New Wave movements elsewhere, going from criticism to worthwhile directing is not really a thing. And even then it was probably more that criticism was the side hustle all along.

I like them a lot but let's be honest : there's some production value to their videos (editing and pacing are the strong point IMHO) but it's not slick, pretty sloppy in parts (I remember some jarring lack of homogeneity in grading between cameras for instance) and not always on purpose. The whole is generally very endearing and works but it's a far cry from actual film.

Their sketch stuff has always been a hit and miss to me. I like their funny discussions and they analyzing films, but their scripted stuff is mostly uninteresting outside Plinkett. Probably that is the reason why they started to not care about the sketchs  or storylines in half in the bag.

They are obviously not as bad as Channel Awesome sketches, is just that certain part of their scripted humor is not for me.

Kind of feel bad for Jay when he said he is not interested intentionally bad films but unintentional ones, even more because they are aware that Space Cop is shitty.

That said, Space Cop was pretty much made as both a joke and away to develop their skills (their scripted stuff keeps getting more elaborate.) And they enjoy the craft, and made it for no budget. I doubt they care whether anyone likes it lol, which is kinda the point?

Prequel Plinkett is still the best, because they had a decade of thinking about that dumpster fire. These Episode 7 and Picard videos came barely a few months (?) after the thing came out.

GB16 is the best Plinkett review since the prequels, so Mike still has it, but yeah when they're rushed out it tends to suffer a bit. And the reViews took a bit out too yeah.

Is Punch Drunk Love even produced by Happy Madison (doesn't seem like it but maybe they're a minor co-producer) ?
You put it into brackets which is sort of the same thing as the point I'm about to belabor but it's not really an Adam Sandler movie, more of a film which happens to have Sandler in the cast.

He should do more of these, yeah.

I thought Anger Management was a passable watch though Nicholson chewing the scenery is the main reason for that.

I watched the wrong missy, and mostly agree with what they said, but it is a super weird film because on a surface level it seems like a feminist role reversal take on a traditional rom-com where the weird asshole guy clearly punching above their weight eventually winds up with the normal and attractive co-star.
But then it gets into weird mysogynistic undertones, because it really hammers home what a crazy fucking bitch the romantic lead is, and almost all of the humour is entirely at her expense in being such a crazy fucking bitch.

Its super fucking weird. And also, yeah, not that funny. The biggest laugh I had was this cover version of the khia song, which is obviously not even their own joke.

Talking about the remake, they really hit on something I never picked on with Tim Burton movies. His movies don't work when everything in it is blown out in Burton weirdness.

Movies like Beetlejuice, Big Fish, Batman worked because there is a proper balance between those "playing it straight" and those elements that are wildly eccentric. It makes the eccentricities really pop when they come on screen. They are absolutely right that the movie would've been far better if the first half played it straight then saved all the wild visuals for the chocolate factory. The Johnny Depp perfomance would've still ruined the movie, but at least it would've all seemed like a fever dream.

Regardless of how you feel it handled elements from the original show (which was far from perfect due to network tampering anyways), there's undeniable moments of brilliance in The Return. Certainly enough for an entertaining video discussion!

And I wouldn't be so sure they both liked it, even though they did warn everyone before The Return came out that it would be more Fire Walk with Me than the network show, and they were obviously right.

Obviously you are free to your own opinion.

I just find it sad you couldn't enjoy it as I did. I went in with an open mind, though. And I hadn't seen the show until right before The Return, so I just don't have those decades of anticipation.

Sometimes, we are our own worst enemies.

I didn't have decades of anticipation either. I think I watch TP the first time right before The Return was originally announced. I hated FWWM the first time I saw it but came around on rewatches, but rewatching The Return I think I liked it even less than I did the first time, and I did not particularly enjoy much of it the first time around.

Tbh, I found The Secret History + Final Dossier to be a much more enjoyable Twin Peaks experience than The Return.

I gotta say, I love Mike but his voice acting is very "I'm doing a silly voice now," and/or maybe the issue is that he falls into the same voices all the time (cat = Plinkett)

but I am actually impressed with Rich in that song, he sounds like a legit cartoon character!

Rule of Plinkett reviews: every time you remember it's been a while since the last one, a year gets added to the debut of the next one.

Mike can be stirred to quick action when it's something he's passionate about, and that's pretty much exclusively TNG these days.

For non-TNG content the best you can hope for is the TLJ review timescale (<1 year.) But that's *best case.*

What is there to say about Rise that hasn't already been said? Finding the answer to that question takes time I'm sure.

The dilemma of this film is basically:

vs
"Don't wish for more, what you have is enough. If you achieve your dreams and ambitions it will end badly for you"  :juche

Being generous by admitting the movie even has a message or theme it successfully gets across, that message would be that truth is the most important thing, but that seems pretty at odds not only with the movie but WW and the DCEU in general where all the heroes hide who they are not even to protect their loved ones (because besides Superman, they don't have loved ones at all or at least in this realm) but just to be secretive. It also throws quite a wrench into continuity where WW was hiding for 100 years between WW1 and BvS but actually she was just working in public under her real name and doing Wonder Woman shit on the side on camera this whole time. Like....Bruce doesn't remember her from the time the world almost ended and she was broadcast to every screen on the planet telling people to renounce their wishes and be the hero?

The whole thing can be summed up by Wonder Woman telling Max Lord and everyone on earth at the end, including paraplegics, victims of hate crimes, those in war torn countries, etc. that: "This world was beautiful... just as it was!"

The RLM video was 100 times better than WW1984 could ever hope to be. Can't believe they're already making another one and bringing Chris Pine back AGAIN.
:dead

Yea like I said jn the movies thread the 80's theme is vastle underused, bork said hey what about the clothes well honestly thats like miminum effort

I said "You mean except for all the hair and clothing styles, cars, interiors, cultural stuff, and that giant mall that looked straight out of Commando?"  There was plenty of '80s' in the movie.  It just generally was less "HEY LOOK THE 80S!!" after that mall scene and the Steve walking around scene.
Title: Re: RedLetterMedia Thread
Post by: Stro on January 04, 2021, 08:25:59 AM
They're both right. There's a bunch of 80s stuff but they do absolutely nothing with it. The exact script could have been the same thing set in just about any decade. In fact it would make more sense today than it did to be set in the 80s, where everyone has a device with a screen on them at all times that can actually be used to force transmissions from world leaders in real time in the real life. Not....transmitting video signals to Apple IIs and early word processors :dead

Post by: ToxicAdam on January 04, 2021, 08:49:19 AM
Maybe the movie was a broader concept where she made a WW movie like it was created in 1984. Which would explain all the weird tonal shifts, lack of action scenes, wedged in love interest angle, corny monologues and bombastic human villain.  So, it was less  about the setting but more about aping the movie tropes of that time.

in another universe I can imagine a WW84 that's like LOOK IT'S THE '80S! in an obnoxious annoying way, I would've thought it would earn some praise for using a light touch, the blockbuster version of subtle

but in that case it shouldn't have had 1984 in the name as if it was important

Also the D&D commentary track has to be one of the least "tied" to the actual movie I've ever seen. :lol 90% of it could be an unrelated podcast, they extremely rarely comment on anything actually going on in the movie.

Yep.

Maybe it's because I hadn't built up any expectations beforehand but I think I liked it more than The Nice Guys and and almost as much as Kiss Kiss Bang Bang. Very cool homage to something like Chinatown or The Long Goodbye and the tonal shift for the last act totally works.

Very glad I saw their recommendation because otherwise I would have completely overlooked it.

When they mentioned it was a TIFF premiere I went and watched the YMS review (he reviews every single premiere from TIFF and a few other Canadian festivals each year), expecting him to hate it (I disagree with his opinions on many films but I like listening to him because he backs up his thoughts and makes smart comparisons to other films, usually), but he was actually mildly positive. For YMS and a genre film that's pretty much a glowing review. :lol

It's rare but when RLM and YMS overlap, or step a little into each other's territory, it's usually stellar content. (e.g. RLM spotlighting some more non-Hollywood stuff, and YMS loving a genre film.)

Surprised Jay and Mike liked it as much as they did actually. It definitely made me go look at the theatrical cut again for the first time in four years and I too was shocked at how much Whedon reshot. Like exposition scenes that didn't need to be reshot that were clearer and shorter turned into longer and more confusing scenes of people standing around. All the ADRing with bad jokes too. Those were one reason I was looking forward to this review even if I expected them to not like as much as they wound up liking it.

Someone on the RLM review said it'd make more sense as a 6-hour D+ show and that's probably right.

Abrams said his workprint actually was much longer than normal for the Star Wars films, like for Star Trek they were closer to the end runtimes. TROS did sound like it had a five or six hour workprint.

I'm unsure if it would be as coherent necessarily. Snyder has a history of working from five/six hour workprints but I don't know if Abrams does.

Ain't nothing wrong with the epilogue, imo. They should see it for what it was, which was multiple post credit stingers to set up movies that will never happen. It's listed as the epilogue, it is a separate part. The final shot of the movie proper is the hero shot.
Title: Re: RedLetterMedia Thread
Post by: benjipwns on March 22, 2021, 09:42:23 PM
I do disagree on ending with that team hero shot. The right ending is a different hero shot, right before The Knightmare, with ironically the same last shot as the theatrical cut, of Clark opening his shirt to reveal the traditional Superman suit being back.

The rest of the epilogue is fine, Barry getting the crime lab job, Cyborg finally feeling comfortable in his own "skin", Bruce and Diana setting up the team headquarters, MARTHA?!? getting the house back via Bruce, etc.

I'd go with Lex and Deathstroke as the mid-credits scene, with The Knightmare as a cut scene for the extras that ultimately has no place in a three hour type cut of the film. It's there as a teaser for a film we never got and will never get, where Darkseid wins for the first part.

Fave points of this review:

- Jay spontaneously bursting out in laughter when Rich says "...even though there's been thousands of years without a Superman"

- Rich barely suppressing his chuckling when Mike intros Lois Lane's Whedon scene

- Mike: "She's hanging out at the Daily Bugle, or whatever-" *Rich and Jay cracking up in the background*

So weird watching this.

Mike still loves evil Superman, assumes it's mostly because Whedon fixed the color correction. :lol

Jay likes the jokes a lot more here.

The bigger things they shit on (motherboxes, Steppenwolf, etc.) stayed the same between the two versions.

Hindsight always seems to be 20/20, eh.
Title: Re: RedLetterMedia Thread
Post by: Stro on March 23, 2021, 06:32:47 PM
"Evil" Superman was awesome that's why. The jokes didn't seem SO bad (which is not to say they were good) when you didn't see what they were added to or replaced, because every single instance and scene that had Whedon reshoots is better in the Snyder Cut. Every single one of them. It's really just baffling to see the two and think how any execs could think the Whedon added scenes were better or fit more or were worth the extra expense. You could cut the Synder Cut version down 45-65 minutes and released that without all the extra cost and trouble it was to shoot all the Whedon stuff and reconfigure the movie, redo so much of the already finished CGI, etc.

Just the concept is bizarre. They thought the movie was too long and wouldn't be good and cost too much, so their response was to bring in another guy to....redo about 60% of the movie, redo most of the CGI, ADD a bunch of scenes, and all of it is worse and makes the story less coherent and shitty. Why didn't they just....do the logical thing and just recut what Synder had to whatever the length they wanted. Surely that would have been much cheaper and easier and pretty much assuredly made for a better movie even if cut to shit.
Title: Re: RedLetterMedia Thread
Post by: benjipwns on March 23, 2021, 06:55:11 PM
The problem was never the length, Snyder was expected to turn in a long workprint and he'd cut it down to two hours. That's standard movie making, especially by Snyder. Except that his daughter died and he stepped away from it. Now they had an opportunity, they didn't like Snyder's version and probably still don't except for a few executives. They wanted The Avengers with their characters and that's why they went and got the guy who made it. They had to get it out for a deadline in their contracts or else they'd lose executive bonuses. That Whedon got the money he did to even do all those reshoots was because they figured he would spin it into gold and they'd make a billion off of it. This was a company that was pinny pinching in the worst possible way so that it was eventually spending tens of millions on CGIing off a mustache instead of paying a flat fee of a few million to have Cavill shave it off and regrow it.
Title: Re: RedLetterMedia Thread
Post by: Stro on March 23, 2021, 07:52:52 PM
I'd say well over 90% of what Whedon shot could have been done with just quick inserts of close ups on the one person saying a shitty joke, complete green screen instead of reshooting whole scenes for one line. What he added fucking sucked. The motherbox shit being set into motion because one of the parademons exploded and for some reason left gooey imprints of the boxes and Batman investigates :dead

I'm not so sure. From what I've read Cavill was doing reshoots for JL while in the middle of shooting Mission Impossible and according to his contract they weren't allowed to physically remove the moustache.

Full dual-release (not just theaters or SVOD, both) and committing to it all over a year ahead of time. No more individual piecemeal delays like Disney and others pussyfooting around and then deciding on the Max strategy anyways.

Can confirm Davidson's face gets blurred in the new version when it wasn't before. The music medley seems the same to me.

I'd like them to cover Rockula but it's far too good to be on Best of the Worst, but it's exactly the kind of movie I think they'd all quite enjoy.

There is definitely a lot of mexican cultural artifacts and tropes in No Panic. I just dunno if they were intentional (grown men acting as children is usally reserved to comedy). Glad they realized that mexican cinema is usally competent if corny as hell.

Angry Video Game Nerd has been doing Monster Madness videos every October since way back when, but this year it was revealed that he has had assistants ghost writing them on his behalf after one of said assistants sloppily plagiarized a review of 28 Days Later to kick off the month. This was, naturally, immediately uncovered, mockeries and apologies ensued.

I suppose that is the reason why RLM is mocking him, as they don’t need script and they feel natural and passionate even if they are also middle age guys posting for the algorithm.

I don’t blame James for not having in him anymore, but still  :trumps .

where they were like "wow, we went through all these movies and didn't plagiarise anything, its almost like its super easy to not plagiarise just by saying what you think, in fact if anything its easier to not plagiarise because you dont have to go and look anywhere except your own thoughts"

The Black Widow critique was pretty good. The guys pointed out after Wonder Woman and Captain Marvel, there wasn't much discussion about female empowerment being used as a tool/gimmick to guilt people into seeing a mediocre movie.

Its sort of interesting their views on YT not being like TV, when quite a few of the larger YT channels that get pushed hard by the algorithm are now like the really old TV shows from the 40s and 50s where there isn't an actual 'ad break' for advertisers to show stuff off, but instead the actual show creators do a little hard sell shilling of their waterproof trainers / knock off airbuds / japanese sweets lootcrate / whatever in the middle of the show and then get back to their show after their little endorsement
Title: Re: RedLetterMedia Thread
Post by: Uncle on January 25, 2022, 07:52:29 AM
yeah it made me wonder, are they possibly a little out of touch with how the extreme side of youtube actually does things now

RLM is just this little "we're puttin' on a show" act but I don't doubt that a lot of channels conduct themselves like TV shows and have brand managers and analysts committed to maximizing viewership
